Porchlight Films has further committed to expanding into television with the creation of a Head of Television role.

The independent production company today announced that Tanya Phegan has been appointed to fill the newly created position.

Phegan has spent the last 12 years in the UK and the US working in various development, production and acquisitions roles, and has worked for both BBC Films and DNA Films.

Her time at DNA films saw Phegan develop some acclaimed projects such as The Last King of Scotland, 28 Weeks Later, Dredd, Never Let Me Go, Sunshine and Notes on A Scandal.

Liz Watts, a founding director of Porchlight Films said, "Since producing two seasons of the comedy series Laid for the ABC, Porchlight has been developing television, but Tanya's appointment marks a new focus on producing high quality content in the television arena. Tanya's background; her creative abilities and understanding of what it takes to make compelling television are a perfect fit for our company".
